On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday. Since I’m still in plotting mode for my next project and gearing up for NaNoWriMo, today’s snippet is from my published urban fantasy IMMORTAL MENAGE, Book 4 of the Immortal Paradise series.
(Edited to meet the 8-sentence format.)
Lexie had taken an ill-advised midnight swim all alone when a man came out of nowhere to save her from a shark attack she hadn't even known was coming...
Lexie let out a little yelp when her rescuer plucked her up in his arms again and carried her up the beach to where her belongings still sat. She had to admit his strength was impressive. He swam out to her, fought her resistance, pulled both of them through the surf, and now still carried her as though her weight was of no consequence.
He crouched and laid her down on the large towel she’d spread out before taking her incredibly stupid swim. Long strands of his jet-black hair dripped water onto her face and chest while he pulled his arms out from beneath her. He lingered there, hovering with the turbulent flame in his eyes searing through her. His very skin seemed to radiate sexuality, as though every bead of salt water rippling down his bronzed flesh were in fact a potent aphrodisiac. The energy she felt from him flooded her with thoughts having nothing to do with her near-death experience.
